ANNIE BENNETT It is with heavy hearts that we, the family, announce the very sudden passing of our beloved Mom and Nana, Annie Bennett, on March 11, 2012, at the age of 77 years. Annie was predeceased by her husband Frank in 2006 and leaves to mourn her passing, yet cherish the wonderful memories of her, son Paul (Lynn) and grandkids Laura, Christopher and Chad; son Stephen, grandkids Gemma and Gavin, their mother Denise, and great grandkids Liam and Carter; and son David, grandkids Matthew, Jason and Ashley and their mother Karen. Nana was a talented seamstress, an avid sports fan and an incredible cook. We will all miss her specialty - perogies, cabbage rolls and meatballs. Her unique version will never quite be duplicated! As per Annie's wishes, there will be no service - simply a family gathering. Your painful days are over, Your sleepless nights are through - For Heaven has called an angel, An Angel as brave as you! We love you and will keep you in our hearts forever!

- When I think of my childhood, I can not recall a time when Aunty Anne was not in the picture.
I can remember her singing and laughing.
I can remember being so very happy when she and her husband (Uncle Frank) and their sons Paul and Stephen moved to the same street in Charleswood that we lived on.
I can remember David being born, card games at the house, watching the Pig and Whistle and the Irish Rovers in black and white ..... with she and my grandmother singing along.
I can hear their voices as if it was just yesterday.
It is unfortunate that as an adult I only got to see her a few times ..... A quick visit to Flin Flon, when I moved up north to try mining during the recession, a visit to her house when she put her swimming pool in her back yard and once at polo park.
Life has been so very busy, I feel so bad, as she was a huge piece of my childhood.
Considering, that I live just up Grant in River Hieghts, a short distance away, and that for almost 20 years now I spend only 50% of my day writing letters and/or other documents (obviously releasing said documents, only after my sec corrects the errors) and the other 50% visiting workplaces .....
I wish with all my heart that I stopped in for a visit, as I promised myself every time I drove by Municipal Rd.
Life always delivers the unexpected, and I feel great regret.
Good bye Aunty Anne and God Bless
